Global Energy Balance Network
The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) had no affiliation with the Global Energy Balance Network (GEBN). ACSM did not financially support the organization or its research, influence its work or promote its outcomes.
ACSM is the largest sports medicine and exercise medicine organization in the world, with more than 50,000 members and certified professionals. Many of those members belong to multiple associations and industry organizations. For example, some members of ACSM had chosen to also participate in the GEBN. Like other nonprofit organizations, ACSM respects a member’s autonomy in pursuing and being actively involved in the professional organizations of their choosing. This, however, does not necessarily constitute ACSM’s support or agreement with its members’ activities or outcomes as it pertains to their involvement with other organizations.
